Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Judges 17 & 18)
“The Case For Absolute Truth”
Text: Judges 17:6
“In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”
“The Case For Absolute Truth,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. By rejecting Absolute Truth (God’s Way), man is left to rule himself (Man’s Way), and chaos prevails! This is that season of chaos in Israel; thieves are blessed in the name of the Lord, (Judges 17:2) and man makes their own customized idols that suit their own selfishness - worship of self. Chaos prevails because “everyone did what was right in their own eyes.” The problem with this is that no two people are the same!
This has been the failure of man from the beginning in the Garden of Eden. Absolute Truth commanded Adam & Eve not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen.2:17). Adam & Eve rejected Absolute Truth and “did what was right in their own eyes;” and ate from the forbidden tree. Adam and Eve were Not created to “do what was right in their own eyes,” they were created to Obey Absolute Truth.
God’s Way is Absolute Truth, Unchanging. Man’s Way is Relative Truth, Always Changing to suit the individual.
We were made to be followers of God Not leaders of our self. The Prophet Jeremiah said:
“O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself;
It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”(Jer.10:23).
God’s Way of Absolute Truth brings order out of chaos, restoring order in our life, and leading us in His Plan of Good Works that He prepared for us to walk in.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”(Eph.2:10)
As we surrender to God’s Way, Absolute Truth works in us; “both to Will and to Do what God wants us to Desire and to Do.” This brings order in our life, and we help bring more order into this world.
Absolute Truth begins with Loving God Supremely, more than anyone else and more than our own life.
Then Absolute Truth continues ordering our behavior toward others, Loving Others as God Loves us. This Love recognizes that we are one race, the Human Race, with One Creator God the Father, which makes us a family of brothers and sisters.
Absolute Truth is the same for everyone, and brings order and peace with God and each other.
Relative Truth is a lie and brings chaos, and self destruction.
Be sure of this my fellow Warrior, Absolute Truth will prevail.
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Matt.24:35).
Standfast in Absolute Truth!
